For the man who enjoys his tumescent male organ â€“ which is just about every man â€“ factors which have a negative impact on his equipment can be worrisome. As long as they donâ€™t actually affect his male organ health, various factors that may have more a â€œcosmeticâ€ or superficial impact on his tumescent male organ are not vital â€“ but they can feel that way to a man who wants his tumescence to always be a source of pride. For many men, the dreaded â€œwinter male organâ€ can be just enough of a factor to be a thorn in their side.
About that winter male organ
The winter male organ is the opposite of the summer male organ. Many men (and their partners) claim that their tumescent male organ tends to be longer and firmer during the summer months. Theyâ€™re not claiming that it grows massively longer, mind you; most of the time whatâ€™s being talked about is a few fractions of an inch. And there is some validity to this viewpoint: in summer months, the greater heat is thought to encourage greater blood flow in the manhood, which in some cases can indeed cause it to expand slightly more than usual or to fill up to a firmness that is somewhat greater than under other circumstances.
The problem with summer male organ is that if the warm weather can bring about this positive change, the cold weather can bring about the inverse â€“ and thus, winter male organ. So the theory behind winter male organ is that the nasty, cold weather associated with the season makes for a less impressive tumescent male organ. It tends to be shorter and not as manfully firm.
According to some people, the diminishment can be significant â€“ up to 50% of length and up to 30% of girth, by the estimates of one person who claims to have looked into the matter on a professional basis. But these figures seem extreme and are likely not the experience of most men. (For example, it seems unlikely that a guy who typically sports a six inch tumescent male organ would be reduced all the way down to a three inch one simply due to cold weather.)
Cold does matter
However, as any guy who has spent a few minutes in a cold swimming pool or ocean knows, cold is not a friend to the male member. And when cold weather is the norm â€“ during the winter months, for example, the body often does undergo some changes.
For example, blood tends to get diverted from extremities, such as toes and fingers â€“ and the member. And the coldness also can affect to some degree the rate at which the blood flows around the body. So, yes, cold weather does mean that there may be a slight shrinkage â€“ but only slight, in the same way that a summer male organ may only see a slight addition in size.
In addition, colder weather also tends to have a de-sensitizing effect on the manhood, so that it may take more effort and more time for the member to become excited and/or to reach release.
To help counteract the effects of the cold, itâ€™s better to wear snugly fitting underwear rather than looser ones. Some men also like to wrap a little pad of cloth or a (clean) sock around their manhood to wear under the underwear on especially cold days.
Battling the effects of winter on a tumescent male organ also requires the application of a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). A crÃ¨me with L-arginine can help to boost nitric oxide production, which in turns helps open up male organ blood vessels so there can be greater blood flow. And one with L-carnitine will provide neuroprotective benefits that can help ease de-sensitization of the manhood.
